The ImagineIF Library in Marion has reopened to the public after undergoing a renovation and redesign. The location, which shares space with the Marion School Library, has been closed since October. The library reopened last week with a fresh coat of paint, new furniture, a self-checkout station and volunteer staffing. The new hours are 3:30 p.m.-5 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Since 1992 ImagineIF Libraries has collaborated with the Marion School to offer library services to the Marion community after school, including books and DVDs, public computers, wireless Internet, and programs such as storytime and Summer Experience.
“All of the changes we’ve made during the closure are really exciting,” said Sean Anderson, senior librarian for branch services. “We’ve done a lot of freshening in the space, which, along with a new self-checkout station, makes the library in Marion feel much more colorful, modern and fun.”
After-School Storytime will resume on Jan. 20, taking place every other Wednesday from 3:30 p.m.-4:30 p.m. Longtime volunteer Deborah Borgaro will continue to lead storytime.
